Get your kicks on Route 66 with a legendary trip across America. From Chicago to Los Angeles, your budget-minded tour of eight states includes stays in Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Your affordable vacation is just in time to attend the 19th Annual Mother Road Festival in Springfield, Illinois. See automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts gather with hot cars, cool trucks, and vintage bikes with a salute to Route 66 and the tradition of the open road. The annual festival celebrates Route 66 (aka the Mother Road) which was called the “Main Street of America” and “Will Rogers Highway” for more than 50 years before the advent of the US Interstate system. Enjoy classic cars, live entertainment, contests and prizes, and other scheduled activities for the Route 66 and automotive enthusiast. Visit Branson, Missouri – one of America’s most popular entertainment destinations – and opt for dinner and a show. Then just outside of Amarillo, Texas, see the famous Cadillac Ranch. In New Mexico, visit Russell’s Car Museum, featuring classic cars and memorabilia, and seize the chance to shop for artisan jewelry made by local craftsmen. Your budget travel plans include an exciting detour from Route 66 with two nights in Williams, a picturesque mountain town with Route 66 as the Main Street and the gateway to the Grand Canyon National Park, as well as a stop in Las Vegas with the option to relax by the pool, explore the Vegas Strip, or raft on the Colorado River. In Los Angeles, you’ll enjoy a tour of Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica. Discover vintage Americana, wide open spaces, and national treasures on your budget travel vacation across the USA.
